This report examines the upward and downward trends in job quality across the EU from 1995 to 2010. The improvement and harmonisation of working conditions are core objectives of the European Union, but many factors affect job quality. The report determines the statistical significance of trends in key dimensions of job quality and maps the patterns of convergence and divergence. It offers an up-to-date analysis of changes in job quality across the EU, providing new insights to inform policymaking. The study concludes that dedicated political effort is still needed to improve job quality since this does not appear to be an automatic consequence of economic or technological development.

    Autor o autores: 
    Eurofound

    Este informe examina las tendencias ascendentes y descendentes en la calidad del empleo en la UE desde 1995 hasta 2010. Aunque la mejora y equiparación de las condiciones de trabajo constituyen objetivos fundamentales de la Unión Europea, son muchos los factores que afectan a la calidad del empleo. El informe determina la significación estadística de las tendencias relacionadas con las dimensiones clave de la calidad el empleo, describiendo los patrones de convergencia y divergencia. Presenta un análisis actualizado de los cambios en la calidad del empleo en toda la UE, aportando nuevas perspectivas capaces de fundamentar la elaboración de políticas. La conclusión del estudio es que se sigue necesitando un esfuerzo político dedicado para mejorar la calidad del empleo, dado que aparentemente esta última no es una consecuencia automática del desarrollo económico o tecnológico.
